The Arizona Silent Service Memorial (ASSM) will be erected in Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza located in the “front yard” of the Arizona State Capitol Complex, 1700 W. Washington Street, Phoenix, AZ.
The ASSM will be a Memorial to honor the "silent service" of Navy submarine veterans. It was begun by a small group of Arizona submarine veterans and the design team of Renee Palmer-Jones (Designer), Jim Martin (Engineer), and Steve Rusch (Draftsman/Model Maker). State Senator Al Melvin presented Senate Bill 1401 to the legislature, it passed and was signed into law on April 24, 2014.
The ASSM will stand 14 feet long, 6 feet wide and 11 feet high. It will carry the plaques of the Great Seal of the United States, Seal of the United States Navy, submarine dolphins (gold representing officers and silver representing the enlisted) and dedication. Memorial Pavers commemorating submarine veterans service will be placed around the Memorial. For more information about the submarine veteran engraved brick pavers, click here. Fund raising efforts are underway and the ASSM Committee welcomes any assistance you may give, monetary or in-kind building. The project must be completely funded prior to beginning construction.
